"Destitute" Chicken by Mags

A while back, I wanted to try Jen's Poor Man's Chicken recipe, but I was lacking the key ingredient of the fancy cream cheese mixture... Not one to be deterred, I did find a new package of STRING CHEESE sticks in our fridge and decided to get creative.... Poorer-Man's Chicken didn't sound as good, so today, I bring you "Destitute Chicken!" (Never mind that my husband noted that string cheese may cost more than a block of cream cheese... details...details...!) :)

6 boneless chicken breasts
6 sticks of string cheese
6-12 strips of uncooked bacon
garlic salt

Optional add-ons: shredded mozzarella or Parmesan cheese

Pound out the raw chicken breasts flat with your meat hammer.
Roll the flat chicken breast around an UNWRAPPED stick of string cheese.
Wrap/Tie 1 or 2 pieces of uncooked bacon around the whole thing.
Sprinkled with garlic salt (and any other seasonings you want).

Freezing Instructions:
Carefully place each roll in a gallon-size Ziploc bag. You can fit 6-8 chicken rolls in one bag.
Press out the air, seal, and freeze.

Serving Day:
Thaw out your frozen rolls.
Lay your chicken rolls in a 9x13" pan (spray it first with PAM!).
Back for 1 hour at 350.

With 10 minutes to go, you can sprinkle extra mozzarella or Parmesan cheese over the top of it and continue cooking if you want. (If you sprinkle the cheese at the beginning of the hour, your cheese will burn.)

  1. We made this twice before I did it for the group - everyone loves it.. although you can add cheese and bacon to just about anything and this family will eat it!! :)

  2. We didn't like it......we LOVED it!!! I forgot to spray my pan with "Pam", but the juice prevented anything from sticking.

    Since we prefer our bacon more crispy, I turned the broiler on to crisp it up on top after the chicken was done. I took the bacon off the bottom, broiled it on a pan and crumbled it on top. Next time, I would probably just flip the chicken over and broil it on the bottom too.

    Delicious! Thanks for making it!

  3. I was nervous about feeding this to my family because the kids aren't big chicken eaters. However, this was LOVED! Both the boys had 2 helpings. Mags, how do you always get my kids to eat chicken?!? Thanks for a great meal.

  4. Very yummy!Thanks for a great meal!

  5. We really like this meal.Thanks!
